Gingham Trousers

Hello!

How was everyone's weekend? I attended an amazing workshop on Saturday held by the London School of Styling. The workshop was called 'Breaking into Fashion' and it was honestly so helpful! We were given some amazing tips on how to get into the Fashion Industry and it really gave me an insight to the Styling side of Fashion. Where I study fashion design at uni, we cover so many areas but styling isn't of them. Or if it does, it's not enough to give us a good idea of what it involves or how you can get into styling. I really recommend that you take a look at their website if you are interested in becoming a Stylist or even if you're just curious! - London School of Styling









Top - New Look
Gingham Trousers - Primark
Silk Scarf - Small Boutique in Paris
Loafers - Clarks
Bag - Topshop
Sunglasses - Primark

*The top, trousers and scarf are all old but I'm pretty sure you could find similar items on the high street. 

For this outfit, I took some inspiration from one of my favourite style icons, Audrey Hepburn. I wanted my outfit to be simple yet chic and stylish, like many of Audrey's outfits. So I opted for these black and white gingham trousers and a plain black top. They would have looked fine on their own but I wanted to add a bit of colour to the outfit. I did this by choosing a silk scarf that I brought in a small boutique in Paris a couple of years ago. I love the colours in the scarf and I thought it would look great against the black and white. As well as the scarf I chose this blue bag to match the blue in the scarf and it adds the pop of colour I wanted. This outfit is now my go-to outfit for when I want to look smart but chic at the same time.

Since loafers are big again this season, I decided to dig out my ones from last year. They are still quite comfy but they are getting a bit battered from wear and tear. I may need to invest in a new pair soon. Actually, I say they're comfy but I wore them to London on Saturday and they hurt my feet so much! Towards the end of the day, I was genuinely limping and I had to cover the backs of my feet in plasters. So, they USED to be comfy.. haha :)

I have an outfit lined up that is inspired by another of my favourite style icons, Alexa Chung! It will be on my blog soon! Who are your favourite style icons? Let me know in the comments! :) 

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed it!
Have a great day! :)

Hello September!

Hello!

A new month! A fresh start!
So it's September now which means for us students, that we go back to school/college/uni soon. I'm about to go into my second year at uni! I'm excited but at the same time, I'm actually quite anxious about it. Everything is going to step up now, the workload, the deadlines, the stress...ahh! It's giving me a headache just thinking about it! Which is why I'm planning to be super organised this year! I say it every term... but this time, I plan to stick to it! I feel like I have come so far with my blog over the summer and I don't want it to stop. It's going to be hard but others manage to do it, so I can too! It might mean I have to go down to one or two posts a week but it is better than nothing. I'm hoping that I will get into a routine which will help a lot.

If anyone has any tips on how to stay super organised, please let me know in the comments! It will be greatly appreciated! :)








Leather Jacket - Topshop
Knitted Jumper - Primark
Culottes - New Look
Mules - 4th and Reckless
Mini Backpack - Topshop

How cute is this mini backpack from Topshop!? It's adorable! I absolutely love the lilac colour and it is actually one of the main colours for AW16. This bag is perfect for adding a pop of colour to any outfit! I didn't actually plan to buy it though, the only reason I bought it was because my favourite red bag broke when I was on my way to London a couple of weeks ago. The handle snapped from where I have used it so much and I needed to get a replacement. I planned to find a canvas tote bag in Topshop on Oxford street but I couldn't find any. Then I found this little cutie. I'm glad I did find it as I love it!

I love this khaki knitted jumper from Primark and it is only £6! There were so many colours too! I can't wait to stock up on them for Autumn as they would be perfect to wear to uni. They are easy, stylish and keeps me warm! Talking of Primark, I have just found that they sell berets!! If you haven't read my last post, I am going to try wearing a beret this season as I have always wanted one and thought I would give it a try. I was planning to get one from eBay or Amazon but I was unsure on what the quality would be and to find that Primark is selling them is great news! They are only £6 too!

Since I chose this khaki jumper for the outfit, I thought the mules from 4th and Reckless would go nicely with the jumper. I still find them a bit high but I am getting used to them! It just might be a while until I wear them for a full day! haha!

I found these pale culottes in New Look's sale and loved them at first. But...that was a good few months ago now and I haven't worn them until now. This is because I think they make me look really pale. If I had a lovely golden tan then maybe I could pull them off better but nope. I like them but after seeing them on, it has just put me off them. I think they look alright for this outfit but I don't think I will wear them again.

What do you think of this outfit? Let me know in the comments and I will reply as soon as I can!
